Auto accidents can happen in many contexts, including at work. A delivery driver may be hit in a rear-end collision caused by a negligent driver. A person running a work-related errand in the company car may get in a head-on collision. The result could be a serious injury.
In these cases, many people turn first to workers’ compensation. While that is certainly a valuable option, it is not the only option. If you or a loved one has been involved in an on-the-job auto accident caused by a negligent driver, you may also be able to file a personal injury claim. This is important because the benefits provided through workers’ compensation are limited. A personal injury claim will allow you to get additional compensation.
St. Paul Auto Accident Attorneys
At the law firm of Swor & Gatto, P.A., we practice injury law exclusively. Since 1981, our lawyers have been helping car, truck and motorcycle accident victims throughout Minnesota get all of the compensation they are entitled to.
Personal injury claims associated with work-related motor vehicle accidents are referred to as third-party claims. They are claims against a third party, a party that is not the victim’s employer. The third-party personal injury claim would most likely be filed against the negligent driver who caused the auto accident.
